Staying on the subject of my last posting, love, I have further thoughts. Actually I could write a whole book about love. Yes I could, but I won't.
Here are my thoughts on love in no particular order:
Ever wonder why dogs always have unconditional love for their human masters? Is it just a coincidence that "dog" is "God" spelled backwards? Just saying.
Ever wonder why even the most craven criminal wants and seeks love? The worst punishment dealt in prison, and which the criminals fear the most, is solitary confinement?
Who among us hasn't seen the love in a mom or dad's eyes when they first look at their newborn child? That same look in their eyes when their child graduates from high school or college?

Remember all those nights you spent in bars (my gay brethren especially) looking for love? Wasn't that what everyone was looking for…..love?
|"Wanna go out on a date?"|
This I know. Love is elusive. If you're looking for it, you probably won't find it. But love will find you, when you least expect it.

Will everyone find love? No and I don't have an answer for that question. However, this I do know, when you find love or more accurately, when love finds you, return that love whole heartedly and treasure every moment because all too often, it is gone like the warm breeze on a cold winter's day.
